The deadliest crisis for children this century.

Children in Gaza are trapped, traumatised and dying from starvation. Endless attacks have killed thousands, and left those remaining terrified for their lives.

War Child is in Gaza. Our local staff are working tirelessly to provide life-saving food, clean water and mental health first aid to children who are in desperate need.

But every day the situation becomes more and more critical for children for our staff.

A donation from you will help us reach even more children in Gaza and the West Bank with life-saving support.

We can’t do it without you. Donate now

About War Child

At War Child we are driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child affected by war.

Using our 30 years of experience and proven methods, we aim to reach children as quickly as possible when conflict breaks out and stay long after the cameras have gone to support them through their recovery.

At War Child, we will never give up on children affected by conflict.
